The Löwensköld Ring is the first volume of a trilogy of novels published between 1925 and 1928 by Nobel Prize for Literature winner Selma Lagerlöf. The cursed ring of the title originates as a gift given from the King of Sweden to his greatest wartime general, and consequently brings suffering and violence to all those who inherit it as its spell continues from one generation to the next. A disturbing saga of revenge from beyond the grave and the insatiable masculine lust for wealth and power, it is also a tale of courageous, persistent women.
We would like to thank Vancouver Civic Theatres for making this workshop and presentation possible through the Activating Spaces program
